Wastewater (Sewer)

The City of Lancaster participates in the Sanitary Sewer Overflow Initiative (SSOI) program with TCEQ. This is a voluntary, proactive program that attempts to reduce sanitary sewer overflows. As part of this program, the City initiated the FOG (Fats, Oils & Grease) Program. The FOG Program attempts to trap or intercept sewer clogging substances at the source before they enter the sanitary sewer system.
